Has anyone ever made a cupcake cake? I have seen them in the bakeries at Wal-Mart and the like. If anyone has tried their hand at this I would love any tips and pics you could send my way. I want to do something quick and simple for my preschool. We are having a baby shower on Friday, Feb. 27th, for our lead teacher.
Thank you all.
Cupcake cakes are insanely easy. Basically you "glue" the cupcakes (still in the liners) onto the cake board with a dot of icing. Once you have all the cupcakes in place, use a large tip or open coupler to pipe icing in long stripes completely covering the cupcakes. Then smooth the icing with a spatula. Then decorate as you would a regular cake. Remember, only the tops get iced, not the sides!
